Sisterspeak237 is a blog born out of a desire to bring to an open space engaging discussions about women’s issues in Cameroon and Africa.
I believe that communication is at the heart of social change and development. I am blessed to have witnessed some of the most amazing changes and development recorded in the journey of empowering women in Africa. We’ve come a long way!! I am blessed to be born in the generation that witnessed the first female president in Africa; today more women and girls are enrolled in school than yesterday, and women are moving beyond kitchen and bedroom walls to boardrooms, flying airplanes and just reaching for the stars .Now, more than ever as ladies we may be tempted to think that we have arrived, in fact the world tries to convince us so. It seems we’ve got all we need and we should keep quiet and stop going on about our rights.
We celebrate the progress made but there is more ground to cover. On Sisterspeak237, we’ll advocate for our rights, share news, opinions and analysis of women’s–obstacles and victories, setbacks and head starts.
If you’re looking for a site that brings you news and views in Cameroon and Africa from a feminist perspective and which engages you in critical discussions about women’s issues, you are in the right place. You’ll find current, factual, informative & positive analyses of topics that concern African women, opinion pieces and personal stories about our lives .
Sisterspeak237 has a mandate to tell underreported stories, facilitate reignite debates and discussions on issues affecting women in Cameroon, break the silence on taboo subjects and most importantly, contribute to sustainable development .
I look forward to sharing this space with you, laughing with you, weeping with you, celebrating and above all speaking with you.
